“The Hobbit” by J. R. R. Tolkien

“The Hobbit is a tale of high adventure, undertaken by a company of dwarves, in search of dragon-guarded gold. A reluctant partner in this perilous quest is Bilbo Baggins, a comfort-loving, unambitious hobbit, who surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and his skill as a burglar. Encounters with trolls, goblins, dwarves, elves and giant spiders, conversations with the dragon, Smaug the Magnificent, and a rather unwilling presence at the Battle of the Five Armies are some of the adventures that befall Bilbo. But there are lighter moments as well: good fellowship, welcome meals, laughter and song. Bilbo Baggins has taken his place among the ranks of the immortals of children’s fiction. Written for Professor Tolkien’s own children, The Hobbit met with instant acclaim when published. It is a complete and marvellous tale in itself, but it also forms a prelude to The Lord of the Rings. ‘One of the most influential books of our generation’ “

A great book recommended by several of our readers.
This is the prequel to J. R. T. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings”, and both works are quite well known throughout most of the English-speaking world, if not most of the entire world. The books have become even more well known due to various adaptations to film, the latest being epic works by Peter Jackson.

We should have a lot of fun reading this book, and I am sure our discussion will be quite animated! Definitely a book for all ages!

The venue is located not too far from the northwest exit of the line 10 Liangmaqiao subway station. Follow Xinyuan NanLu (south rd.) going towards town, until you get to the first intersection (Xinyuan Jie--Xinyuan rd.), cross the road and go rt. Located in the corner building (Beijing Soho Residences) facing Xinyuan rd.
